TOPEKA – The Kansas Department of Health and Environment has rescinded a boil water advisory for the Ellis Co. RWD No. 6 public water supply located in Ellis County. The advisory was issued because required monthly bacteriological monitoring had not been completed, resulting in unknown water quality.

Public water suppliers in Kansas take all measures necessary to notify customers quickly after a system failure or shutdown. Regardless of whether it is the supplier or KDHE that announces a boil water advisory, KDHE will issue the rescind order following testing at a certified laboratory.

Laboratory testing samples collected from the Ellis Co. RWD No. 6 public water supply indicate no evidence of contamination and all other conditions that placed the system at risk of contamination are deemed by KDHE officials to be resolved.
